Welcome to the future! Humanity kicked the bucket long ago, but it has left something behind. Trash. Garbage. Litter. No one remembers when the first piece of junk opened its eyes under the hot sun of the post-human Earth, but one thing is certain – the new inhabitants of our world need to find some purpose for their existence if they don’t want to just lay around and rot for what feels like an eternity. And so, in the midst of an emerging civilization of the trashkind, an absurdly naive and inept yogurt Cup undertakes a journey to find love. Which would be hard enough, even without a cynical nihilistic half of a beer can strapped to his back.
What if humanity died out and our own trash inherited the place? What would it live for? Would it remember us? And would it even give a damn? The longer I’ve been exploring the world of Garbage, the more surprised I’ve become by how much there is to dig out. How deep, yet silly it can go. How absurd, yet strangely familiar it gets. And by how much fun I’m having. The setting allows me to mix existentialism with humor in a way that makes me love working on the story just as much as telling it to others. So let’s roll up our sleeves and explore together, while humanity is still around!
